Happy Friday the 13th to all! It is a personal tradition that on this date, which occurs a few times over the course of each year, for me to sit down and watch one of the many (and I mean many) films in the Friday the 13th franchise which includes; Friday the 13th (1980), Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981), Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982), Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984), Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985), Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part 6 (1986), Friday the 13th Part 7: The New Blood (1988), Friday the 13th Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989), Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993), Jason X (2001) Freddy vs. Jason (2003) and the imaginatively titled; Friday the 13th (2009).
At some point today I will be picking one of the aforementioned films to watch and I will let you know how I got on in my next blog. If you fancy enjoying a blood dripped slice of Friday the 13th your self later today the 2009 Michael Bay ‘re-imagined’ version is showing on Film 4 at 10:45pm. Despite this being one of the all time worst out of the series long time fans of the show Supernatural may still enjoy it for Jared Padelecki. If the 2009 version will be the first Friday the 13th film you have ever seen please do not use it as a marker post for the rest of the series as it is merely a cardboard cut-out in comparison. If you are intimidated by the large number of Friday the 13th franchise to chose from please do not fear as Friday the 13th will be coming around twice more this year on Friday April 13th, and Friday July 13th 2012. Well that is it for now dear readers, all that remains is for me to wish you good luck until midnight!
